Bierman ABA Autism Center Launches First Arizona Center

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., Oct. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Bierman ABA Autism Center is excited to announce the opening of its first Arizona location in Scottsdale. This new location will provide care to children diagnosed with autism between the ages of 2 to 8. Services include ABA therapy, speech therapy, and occupational therapy. The center is designed to enhance one-on-one therapy sessions, as well as having playrooms and outdoor spaces to build gross and motor skills. In addition to therapy services, Bierman offers family resources and training to help each family meet their goals. Bierman’s clinical team focuses on everyday successes that lead to long-term successes. This center accepts a variety of health insurances.

Bierman ABA Autism Center is a place where the children engage in natural play to learn foundational skills they can build on such as self-advocacy and communication. Dr. Ashley Bennett, the organization’s VP of Clinical Services says, “We recognize that each child’s success is different, and our one-on-one approach allows us to monitor progress and adjust to ensure that each child is advancing on their own terms. As a long-term Arizona resident, I am excited to see Bierman help so many families within our community.”  

The Bierman clinical team is dedicated to taking an individualized approach with every child ensuring they become a lifelong learner. To date, Bierman has graduated more than one-hundred children from its therapy programs.

Note/Warning:

Autistic people have fought the inclusion of ABA in therapy for us since before Autism Speaks, and other non-Autistic-led autism organizations, started lobbying legislation to get it covered by insurances and Medicaid. 

ABA is a myth originally sold to parents that it would keep their Autistic child out of an institution. Today, parents are told that with early intervention therapy their child will either be less Autistic or no longer Autistic by elementary school, and can be mainstreamed in typical education classes. ABA is very expensive to pay out of pocket. Essentially, Autism Speaks has justified the big price tag up front will offset the overall burden on resources for an Autistic’s lifetime. The recommendation for this therapy is 40 hours a week for children and toddlers.

The original study that showed the success rate of ABA to be at 50% has never been replicated. In fact, the study of ABA by United States Department of Defense was denounced as a failure. Not just once, but multiple times. Simply stated: ABA doesn’t workIn study after repeated study: ABA (conversion therapy) doesn’t work. 

What more recent studies do show: Autistics who experienced ABA therapy are at high risk to develop PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions. Historically, the autism organizations promoting ABA as a cure or solution have silenced Autistic advocates’ opposition. ABA is also known as gay conversion therapy.


The ‘cure’ for Autistics not born yet is the prevention of birth. 

The ‘cure’ is a choice to terminate a pregnancy based on ‘autism risk.’ The cure is abortion. This is the same ‘cure’ society has for Down Syndrome. 

This is eugenics 2021. Instead of killing Autistics and disabled children in gas chambers or ‘mercy killings’ like in Aktion T4, it’ll happen at the doctor’s office, quietly, one Autistic baby at a time. Different approaches yes, but still eugenics and the extinction of an entire minority group of people.


Fact: You can’t cure Autistics from being Autistic.

Fact: You can’t recover an Autistic from being Autistic.

Fact: You can groom an Autistic to mask and hide their traits. Somewhat. … however, this comes at the expense of the Autistic child, promotes Autistic Burnout (this should not be confused with typical burnout, Autistic Burnout can kill Autistics), and places the Autistic child at high risk for PTSD and other lifelong trauma-related conditions.


[Note: Autism is NOT a disease, but a neurodevelopmental difference and disability.]


Fact: Vaccines Do Not Cause Autism.
